    I am an Assistant Professor in the Institute for Health & Aging, Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences. My research broadly focuses on investigating social justice issues impacting the quality of life of community-dwelling older adults, including aging in place, age-friendly cities, elder abuse, and the evaluation of training programs and community supports and services for caregivers and people living with dementia. I teach in the UCSF Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership (MS-HAIL) Program and in the Department of Public Health at San Francisco State University. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Metta Fund, Community Living Campaign, and Head Over Heels Athletic Arts.
